Summer Highs

I’ve been a bit absent in the blogosphere recently; sunshine, holidays, new friends and special occasions seem to have distracted me recently. Yet some people have been using their summer in much more productive ways.

Laura, a fellow Warehouse veteran, is at the start of a very exciting adventure as she embarks upon her own clothing line: Trove. She hasn’t sacrificed her summer either, as well as getting engaged she also jetted off to Croatia and Paris. Then there’s Kelli, a friend from school, she’s always been a hip kid and her clothing line Wosh is coolness personified. She’s managed to do all this whilst at the same time raising money for Hodgkin’s Lymphoma, a cause close to her heart.

These ladies have snapped me out of my summer haze and I will be interviewing both of these inspirational women in the near future so stay tuned. Hopefully their stories will in turn encourage you.

Seaside Style

photo

This weekend I ventured to Mersea (near Colchester) to join my parents who are holidaying at Monkey Cottage there.

Mersea is a picturesque fishing village, famous for its Oysters. Sadly I’m not sophisticated enough for such delicacies (the thought of them makes me want to gag)…I stuck to the classic fish and chips instead.

Talking of seaside classics… queue the Breton stripes.

Wouldn’t this top just be perfect for a late summer’s afternoon stroll along the beach…

KimoYES

It’s Britain and no matter how hot it might be it’s just NOT appropriate to walk around in a bikini top and hotpants, but “it’s so hot” I hear you cry “what are we supposed to do?” Get your kimono on!

Try this over the top of a plain jersey bodycon dress…
